Saturday, October 26, 9am. Please plan to come and help remove the remaining lifts, clean up the grounds, retrieve the beach equipment, and close the Club for the season. The wrecker is scheduled for 10am. If there is a delay due to weather, members will receive an email.
The Fall Meeting is planned for Monday, November 4. Details to be announced.
October 15 through mid-November, there is a Voluntary Waterfowl Avoidance Area in Navigation Pool 7 (West side of Lake Onalaska) marked with white buoys, covers a 3,356-acre section of the lake, and is used by large numbers of migrating waterfowl, particularly canvasbacks.
Waterfowl are sensitive to human activity occurring near their resting and feeding areas. Even relatively distant boating activity may be enough to cause the birds to flush and burn-up valuable energy reserves. Boaters who voluntarily throttle down and avoid concentrations of waterfowl, wherever they occur, will help the birds accumulate fat reserves needed for the remainder of their long migrations.
The LAX Sailing Club is a cooperative of sailboat owners, who share the responsibilities of maintaining the club grounds and various events for sailors.
